REMEMBER TO DANCE EVEN WITH ALZHEIMER’S

January 24, 2014 —  During our courting times those many years ago Ken and I would often dance the night away at the Claremonth Hotel high in the hills of Berkeley, California.  Back then dinner dancing was the popular thing to do.  Between courses we two-stepped around the ball room to the sound of Russ Morgan who played all the popular tunes — signing off with his theme song, “So Tired,” which became our song to remember.

In this charming film a very talented  Josh Mullins let’s us know about Edgar and his love who invites him to join her and drive away in a ’57 Chevy, but he can’t get out of the house.  Aware of his loneliness their daughter does the next best thing and waltzes with him around the kitchen.  Dedicated to my husband as I remember our wedding anniversary and dancing with him on January 21.  Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart.
